Our good boardie Javier asked me to post that unofficial Popbot caps giveaway ends on: Friday 2-1-13 at 7:00pm PST.
You can check the thread dedicated to it here.

There has been a bit of an issue with AK Shit Weather Bleak (which shipped out last week) boots.

Due to the production mistake, the current boots on Bleak are plastic made. The fake leather boots (replacement) will be send in April.

Above mentioned replacements will be send automatically, but if you have any other wishes, please contact our customer support at cs@threeaonline.com and we are very sorry for the trouble.

More Q&A by Ashley Wood.

If the upcoming Harold sale is successful enough for threeA to offer 1/12 Harold singles in the future, would offering 1/12 singles of the colorways that have been announced for the sale next week count as a rerelease?
"yea, the colorways announced for the sale next week is a one time only affair, gotta keep the tradition going!"

Saying that we will see another WWR Bramble (unknown which version yet) with Deep Powder's Bramble MK2 gatling gun:
"Yea, there should be another Bramble with gatling..... Im gonna get onto that"

Answering on Beautiful War (Ashley's next book project):
"you will see, its the evolved version of TP + Ash story telling, I love comics, i love prose, i love art, they all tell the story in different ways, each having an advantage. you will see. I have another project that is presented the same way too coming up."

Would you ever release a slogger like in the "there " painting?
"there painting slogger, jolt my memory, coz i dont really remember paintings and there names"

February - 2013 W7XfgpXt

About the bot on "There" painting (shown above)
"that twin gun bertie is cool, basically a sub bertie called a Hammerhead."

and Soldgiers:
"the panhead will make an appearance, they are the common soldiers"

On making Hammerhead (sub Bertie)
"that bot makes a few appearances in multiply versions, its just a case of me gettign around to it. It can either be 100% and takes forever, or I get 5 guys to help me, then its not 100% me but you get them...
Im on the takes forever side, so you know your getting the real deal!"


Answering on my question whether we will see WWRp 003 Rothchild Internal Police Caesar this year:
"Yup the RIP WWRp caesar will appear first half this year, black and white in a set , red with WWRp rothchild"
"RIP000 the stillborn !"

"i meant more rip in general, im writing this, email and skype at once" - meaning that he didn't mean to re-release 001 & 002

Good news that Rothchild is coming in 1/12th scale as well, 2013 will be an epic year!

On ThreeA Publishing Imprint: Goya coming up at the store:
"buy the goya, support great artists!"

Goya books, which are up at Bambalandstore are pre-printed and there are no plans for second printing:
"pre printed"
"even if they sell out today, I have others to print, no second printings planned!"


About John Cuneo book and 3A Publishing books in general:
"cuneo is epic
infact I dont make art books unless they are worth buying !"


More on John Cuneo and art in general:
"not for everyone, fuck what art is apart from the shit filler that floods our world.
John should be for everyone, but i guess most need pretty easy to digest shit, that doesnt tax the mind or soul, that their partner wont get angry at them for for having etc... or maybe set them apart from their peers, GOODLORD quick get in line!
buy what you like, never listen to the horses in the race !"

"but you added to it by saying what you did!
I hope anyone that comes on this forum is of liberal mind and heart, if not fuck off ! i cleared the room!
which ever you get, will be great, even if you dont like it"


Answering on 2000AD Ro-Busters era, spare head with Hammerstein.
"i answered your question a while ago somewhere, I dunno, maybe the bamba version will, only one head for now, the ABC warrior version.\\\"
"all the 2000ad is under review we have around 6 toys in production, and until its all naile ddown and rebellion are fine with it, I cant say much, Im kinda wary of discussing stuff that im not directly creating or re imagining IP like the ****** project. Ill speak crap about my stuff willy nilly 1"
"I want a Ro busters head too !"


Fuck it #5 and M+M2 books are coming:
"I have fuck it 5 done, just have not printed it, i will soon."
"M+M book two soon as its done, I have around 5 pages left..."


On two of remaining three Popbot 7Bones figures:
"punk king and last 7b is a two pack is the way it will end"

We will see more Norge Defence bots in WWRp (so far there was only one) and offering more colorways, without showing photos of the final product:
"next WWRp run for Norge
I wanna offer more colorways, like the Harold system, even of there isnt a sample."


Here is to give you some idea a photo WWRp Norge Defence LM crashing poor lil de Plume by Pablolobo

February - 2013 PDHA9Nct

Answering whether Popbot 9 has entirely new art (as Ashley been working on it for some time now):
"mostly new, kinda redid it all, some older but yea for pop"

On WWR Private Houson:
"I think Howson will be a slogger"

On doing Goya book as well:
"ill do a goya someday!"

Commenting on these partially hand-made BEAUTIFUL WWR JDF Square SMART PHONE CASE , 1000 pieces of which will be offered at Wonder Festival 2013 (Winter) in Japan on Sunday February 10th and from 10th February 17:00JST - 18th February 21:00JST at Good Smile store (direct link to the item description page).

Commenting whether there is a chance to see DW/NW (which will look great on B&W iPhones) or any other colorways:

Real Steel: Midas started shipping this week and we plan to ship all by the next week. Here are some photos by adran from toysdaily (direct link here)

February - 2013 UHRmW2ttFebruary - 2013 SGsoqjztFebruary - 2013 OTBD1DOtFebruary - 2013 VMVRLeTtFebruary - 2013 T4KvEvTtFebruary - 2013 I2a3WqltFebruary - 2013 H2cEixctFebruary - 2013 Dn3UufXtFebruary - 2013 23Gey3qtFebruary - 2013 TQ8wYg1tFebruary - 2013 29M1gCTtFebruary - 2013 9Xtt3qztFebruary - 2013 OMJPlK9tFebruary - 2013 RkfC0bstFebruary - 2013 226Swj9tFebruary - 2013 RXESkuBtFebruary - 2013 XxyOSVltFebruary - 2013 7AEzNrst

Beautiful ThreeA imprint: Goya 12" x 12" art books are still up at www.bambalandstore.com

February - 2013 SwuMNzKtFebruary - 2013 X4064kYtFebruary - 2013 V1wfzrOtFebruary - 2013 Az2zq4Et

Here is Brent Ashe sharing some details on them:The books are more of an art catalogue format so they do not contain interviews. Since the format is 12 x 12, we wanted to showcase the artwork as large as we could and keep the text and info to a minimum.
Each book is a collection of existing artwork selected by the artist along with Ashley with the idea being to showcase material that's been - for the most part - previously unpublished anywhere else.


04.02

Out of 15 colorways, which were shown so far and go on sale, on February 6th 9:00AM HK time, only five Harold colorways samples were created and can be shown to the public:

February - 2013 WsF5AOztFebruary - 2013 Rd3QfbYtFebruary - 2013 OAbGEEdtFebruary - 2013 YJEo15ptFebruary - 2013 PKtddHWt

Here is Ashley Wood explaining why:
"already said we dont have samples of the other harolds, its an option for peeps who wanna trust us, if not cool. I know many want certain colorways, we just dont have the time to sample them all up with CNY and the shipping toys taking priority ( the REX also made use of our sampling dept to get it done etc).
As this may be the only time Harold is offered I thought it was an option"


Answering about WWR MK2 Bertie, yep in 1/6th scale:

February - 2013 K6OiDt

"second half of this year, takes a while to nail the big ones, get them right etc, plus its not simply a MK2 bertie"

Prices about future books and on MK6 (fatty):
"cant confirm on prices for future books as the prices to print keep going up.
MK6, i just wanna make sure Harold goes over the line! fingers crossed for all robots i have ever illustrated !"


More on TK KLUB and why you can't just choose and skip releases:
"re tk Klub, i explained my thinking behind it, its in or out. After CNy ill have more details, but till then TK KLUB is pretty much set, if you can just pick and choose, why bother doing it, there is no reason."

No TK KLUB in February:
"no tk's in feb, CNY really puts back new samples etc
TK KLUB has TQs in it.."


Commenting on the previous statement that TKs will be sold on sketch basis:
"nah, I think a sample is better, a sketch is too vague, i want you guys to have a good idea of what your getting for TK Klub, or maybe i should just sell blind.. that may be more fun !"

After that our boardies started saying that selling blinds for TK KLUB is much better:
now thats TK KLUB!

On new Adventure Kartel figures samples:
"got the peppermint grove and Golden dolphin in hand, classic AK !"
"i will show when 100% done
they are very cool ( very silly, well the dolphin ), peppermint has a cool bike too"

WWR Harold FS F5 Bar and Grill went up, here is all the info:

WWR Harolds go up for sale on February 6th, 9:00AM HK time. Price: 300USD shipped, you get both WWR and WWRp versions of the same Harold in every box. WWR Harold stands around 14" tall and his tracks are fully functional.

At this point we showed 15 colorways and we have samples of only five of them. We know that many want certain colorways and we decided to offer significantly more this time, but unfortunately samples couldn't be produced in time, so it's a matter of trust when you will be buying other colorways.

Here are Harold samples:

Ashley about Adventure Kartel books and characters:
"Ak book oneday, work on stuff all the time, just not in a rush yet!
Mrs shadow is coming, but i need to get her tts right and be able to print correctly on the body, she is the first to use our new chunky body, but then again i might just make a Chunky TQ which I think would be great !
The Spank is the enemy of the GD ) golden Dolphin and peppernint grove ).
zomb MD is heading your way this year, his ex lover the Brain with tentacles is the Harbinger of the release!"


About WWR JDF Harold and special offer for people, who will be buying all 15 Harolds:
"I dont have a JDF HArold, which sucks !
as some have asked, there will be a Complete 15 Harold pack plus signed print available tomorrow. though Im not too worried about the signing part as there wont be many"


What kind of fuel or energy source does the WWR bot's runs on?
"WWR run on a heady mox of Diesel and Batteries. Similar to a hybrid car, the heat and friction get flipped into energy. Lots of smoke!"

Are we ever going to see Casual Sham drop or is she a no go now?
"Casual sham didnt look Sham enough, so I figured nah. At least I dont just say fuck it, ill sell it regardless."

Will we see surprises offered during Harold FS sale and on Harold in general:
"No, to make 15 colorways of a large toy is pretty crazy! no surprises tomorrow.
Harold could my most roboty robot, takign those shots yesterday really made clear why i dig him, simple yet with character."


It's there a reason Shit Weather Bleak and Fucking Tracky Bleak don't have grey in thier hair like the Standard Bleak?
"hair dye !
just changing it up!
Merde Mission is pretty grey, he is Bleak's dad!"


What inspired you to do the Robot Heavy for Team Fortress and can we expect it this year?
"I play TF2 with my boys, love all the designs , the Robot Heavy is first of the ranks. Im a big game fan, i loved working on them, and now as the dev lookout makes it possible for smaller teams to do original games on mulitply platforms, I have started on this path too, Kickstarter here i come !"

On making games (Popbot / WWR and in general):
"yea, me too, but shit never goes easy. no game company has the nuts to make a popbot game, A large hame company wanted to make a TK game but it didnt seem the type of game i wanted, dark, funny and not pandering to the audience ! so I passed. Shit will happen !
Lets see what happens, i say no more than yes when it comes to stuff like this. I think the AK world would make a great sandbox game, Pop is no brainer, TOTEM too. But if any of you guys have been involved in games, you know most companies just want slam dunk easy sells, generic type IP shit, or KILL KILL KILL MORE SHIT, with some military speak thrown in! Bang, ya fucking cunt, take the forward line private, shoot those fuckers, cover ya 8, give me cover!"


About AP Adventure Kartel Finger Gang sale and their hands:

February - 2013 Q6NLst

"late feb for finger gang. we prototyped with articulated fingers, but they were too problematic and broke etc. plus they looked too big. they are posed too hold weapons etc"
"re finger gang hands, to be clear, each figures come with weapon holding hands ( 1 or two ) and standard relaxed hands"


Answering whether it's possible to make separate slip-cover for a dozen or so 12x12 books to fit:
"43, the books have to be a success first, I cant beleive they have not sold out, when you get to hold one and feel the majesty you will agree.. I was lookign last night at all 3, they are just great simple tomes that get across the art so well. no bullsjit small pages with 4 images to a page etc
fingers crossed !"


Ashley sharing photo of AK Zomb Soldiers:

February - 2013 DCQt7sBt

About AK Zomb Soldiers sculpts and other details:
"helmets and head are one piece, resculpted heads i think, not re used, but i wanted the classic faces.."
"re blood, a bit here and there, but i like the de-saturated look !"
"re zomb weapons, yea, they need some heavy shit!"
"oh, the War zombs will have the realistic boots"


Answering about WWR weapons and accessories set which been discussed for few years now:
"re guns and shit set ( great name that ) Its a time thing again, its only me at the desk, i gotta design and have it all written up to get it going ! Siu alraedy has to deal with so much from me, we are lucky she is there !"

On AK Tracky Custard

February - 2013 ErU9jt

"tracky custard.... mmmm soon"

Ashley sharing a photo of Popbot Fuck Jenga Classic TK Severed Head (offered back in September 2012)
"my fav head"

February - 2013 O5rXPlIt

On shipping and whether there will be more bot heads like that classic one:
"Dunno on the shipping, i never get told, should be soon.
no more heads like that, have a new one coming ! Well for TK KLUB members !


Popbot Dark Blind Cowboy in service of him super set (most likely offered in March 2013):

February - 2013 ZDWltHrtFebruary - 2013 JJdFTA4t

Commenting about it:
"it is, the cross eyes are classic.
that my friends is an iconic toy.. ash takes a boy and runs off, to avoid bullets!"
"simple and elegant solutions are the hardest. NO WAIT I COULD PUT SPIKES AND BIGGER GUNS ALL OVER IT!"

Whether it's a possibility to see Blind Cowboy superset in 1/12th scale:
"no mini cowboy and horse, well not yet, have not got the right look nailed in small size.. "

Are there any plans for another space combat bot other than the Armstrong 0G?
"the WWR world doesnt really have much space battle action, the Armstrong really is still rooted to the moon etc. I have a design for a Long Range Armstrong L.R.A, keep reminding me to do it !"

On 2000AD figures, which are in the making:
"re 2000ad, as mentioned over time, Hammerstein, joe pinapples, rogue, Johnny alpha, dredd, Black blood and Mean machine and some others but I cannot say yet"

About PU leather boots on figures:
"not all boots will be fake real, some will, Peppermint Grove has material style boots, really nice too !"

Question about new Adventure Kartel characters: Who are Peppermint Grove and Golden Dolphin?
"and dont forget modern classics
they are brother and sister and both have parts of sumin. !"


Ashley about Playmobil sets and that b]Popbot Dark Blind Cowboy in service of him[/b] super set will be offered in March :
"i collect playmobil
those are fine sets, but my set smashed their smiley happy lil grins into the dirt and brands the OWNED into their hides..
saying that, i would like that top set...
march for horsey set"

About upcoming WWR Harold FS sale and 15 Harold set offer in particular:
"i think its the biggest set ever, if not, ill make it bigger !
Look 3A isnt trying to be "TOY" company that fits in with the staus quo or whats considered the way, i dont really care for that, Infact thats boring as shit, and even at the cost of total failure i would rather do things my way. coz oneday when im old ( hopefully ) ill get to say, fucking well played ash, you did your way and didnt play the game ) hate the game, hate the player I say !"


Another confirmation that there will be no surprises:
"if i sign more then 3 prints, ill be amazed !
fuck i hope not, as i gotta make em too !
no surprises with the Harold drop, as its pricey and I dont want people to miss out on sumin great coz they cant stretch. I had an idea for surprise but the emo and cost would have made people not smile."
"nope, really no surprises !
maybe next time "

One of our boardies from Australia already reported that ThreeA Publishing WE ARE catalogue spotted in his home. Can't wait to share the photos with you guys!

13.02

x43x sharing word from Ashley about "Pick the next print" thread results:
Word from Ash is that he will do some test prints in order to get a good rendition of Bamba Run. Stay tuned for more info. I did give Ash a link to the thread, so maybe he will stop by. If not, I'll pass on anything I hear.

Ashley Wood is back from his Wonderfest trip:
"im back and shagged out !
3A is pretty much on holiday till next week ! So im going to spend my time painting in the dark and recover !
Ill be back next week and see whats up!"


On his trip and ThreeA toys fan-gallery by ThreeA Japan Legion outpost members:
"it was a great time, not much sleep so old ash is kinda zonked!
Japan is always fun, hanging with Goodsmile was great too, but seeing the Japan Legions gallery of ThreeA toys really made me proud!
Im a lucky guy!"


About Ashley Wood Gallery prints:
"still printing stuff out, have been away, taking my own time.
there are many awesome artists that you can grab a a print from, im sure with very clear details on where and when. Im never going to be that artist or seller, i think that is very apparent.
Still very much appreciate the interest and i intend to sell one this week, soo as they are printed out, and remember I print em, make sure each is right and represents my work, not some dodgy 3rd party that doesnt really know or care like me.
back to annoying i guess!"


I'm not putting more Ashley Wood gallery prints quotes & info here, but I guess if you are interested in these things, you know where to find that info and in which threads it's being discussed.

Couple of words from me on books. I love and enjoy Ashley's books and was after "Extreme Finale" for a good while, now I'm more than happy that there is going to be a new run. Here is Ashley on "Extreme Finale" being offered again and Dead Astro Gangster (from Popbot) featured there:
"its a fun book very proud of that period. so happy to see it available again, of course the shit heels that prosper on ebay and other places selling it for dumb prices are gonna be bummed..
dont forget to search for the first appearances from the Dead Astro gangster thats in it!


Going into more details about "Extreme finale" book:
"no its the same size as the original, nothing has changed apart from the cover art, its hardcover and has a slip. would have used the same cover as before but I didnt work, there were never many made of the original, many people missed out first time.
I want to keep my art available and in print always, thats why i do it, to expose it, not make collectible books or follow anyones agenda on whats the right or wrong to publish. Just wanna keep dropping my daks and showing my art. I thought that was obvious"


Book collection by x43x, giving you good idea how big "Extreme Finale" (more than 800 pages in that book) is:

February - 2013 BXJhJBqt

Posting in Ashley Wood art thread:
"i have many STROLL like images, there is a skill in the stroll. thats all i do!
the paintings dont really show what im up too, and thats done on purpose as its my next show. but are still fun and some them will be in the Machine Witches book. As hardly any gallery guides were printed I though it would be cool to take the final exhibited paintings, add in the sketches and paintings that I didnt send, originally all the panels would have had a stronger narrative ending with a largish Ascension cloud painting etc. also has the text behind the paintings that only the visitors that met me there heard. i think it comes out in may from IDW. but i could be wrong there..still a fine book if you dug the levine show!"
"not prelims, i didnt do any, dont really work that way on most things, i develop as i go based on a hunch etc its drawings and paintings that were done before and just after i guess... wait and see, its cool !"

WWR JEA MIM Grunt from WWR Meat is Murder set, which will include: Armstrong, Dropcloth, MK1 and MK2 Squares.

Ashley answering whether there is a chance to see digital version of "Entreat" offered for Android/iPhones:
"no plan for digital version, the Entreat one was a lot of work and not many grabbed it"

I love when people are taking their figures out of the boxes and playing with them outside and it's hard to surprise our forum boardies with this...however ThreeA Hong Kong Legion outdoor Adventure Kartel figs photoshoot took it to the next level!

Ashley Wood about upcoming art shows (please don't confuse them with toy shows):
"still waiting for PAris to be finalized.. i dont have any say in that side, hence why i have been quite"
"one other thing young man, its gonna be older stuff, a mini retro show. My gallery type isnt locked down for anywhere yet. the only gallery appearance I have in the short term is a piece for the Corey Helford Gallery"
"no, im playing a minor part at the CHG gallery, im sure more info will be released regarding it soon, hell i dont know much about it !
lets not forget the Roq la Rue show !"

I wonder how it all ends on this photo by EM Mon

February - 2013 TGrpmAht

Long time ago me and my lady agreed not to buy presents or go out for a meal on February 14th, as it's really disappointing how commercialized this day is becoming. Maybe it's just me, but I grow up in Soviet Union and February 14th wasn't celebrated here at all, then great Iron Curtain went down and we were open to all wonders of capitalism, including commercialization of love and Christmas Holidays.
But don't get me wrong, other then that, I don't see anything bad in having another day - to remind your partner how important he/she is to you.
So if you are celebrating, I wish you to spend this day in love , care and harmony with your loved ones!

ETERNAL STIGMATA art show mentioned for the first toy (just to be clear: fine art by Ashley Wood, no figures):
"So i know your interested, i have name my next show.....
ETERNAL STIGMATA
its more dark than Machine Sabbath, im quite in love with the ideal of it !"


On upcoming Paris show and Eternal Stigmata differences:
"re PARIS SHOW, if it happens, its showing stuff from the last 5 years, WWR, Ak etc, not a gallery show of new stuff, thats ETERNAL STIGMATA, I dont have a home for it yet, but fuck that, im painting away !"

Ashley Wood on bringing WWRp DW&NW Dropcloths to life and on offering Action Portable figures at Bamba next week:

Here is something I been working on for a good while:

http://pinterest.com/threea/

Just mostly finished uploading photos two days ago and it's a bit hectic and needs to be polished over the edges, but would love to see more followers (currently it's 18 people, who discovered that hidden project) and hopefully hear some positive feedback Smile

At this moment it has 835 pins, which are dated from May 2009 to February 2013, wow, right? It's a bit vice-versa there, as I started with new stuff and was going back in time month by month and pinterest puts latest updates on top. So...please follow, support, share and repin! Cheers!

Ashley about AP Tomorrow Queens
"all 5 tqs are single purchases or the set shipped for 180.
no surprizes, thats next month! "


Answering on: Will we ever see Junko or Ayako TQs? question and talking about prices:
"see how these go first.
fingergang set 290 free shipping
we make these prices as low as we can!"


followed by this answer la bit later:
"one day, depends on this sale though. or maybe ill just drop them without warning tomorrow....."

Who are Junko and Ayako you might ask and why them seem important? ThreeA female figures started with Ayako and Junko at Hong Kong Venture in November 2009, 25 pcs of each were made. And naturally when we made TQs in 1/12th scale, we started with Junko and Ayako again...here are they, shown at SDCC 2012:

"no TK KLUB till March, the office and hatchery are not online 100% yet
Support the AP !"


Explaining how AP Finger Gang set and AP Tomorrow Queens are boxed:
"singles TQ's have single boxes, the TQ set and Finger set have a single box containing all the figs"

Quick update before AP Finger Gang set and AP Tomorrow Queens go on sale in 30 minutes.

Ashley about art on boxes:
"all boxes will have paintings !
for sets that is !"


About this guy (shown right after Charkin sale):

February - 2013 OJld9t

"only one operative awol from the set, the FLAMER, but he was asked to leave for reasons to be revealed ! "

Figures are up and available at Bambalandstore right now.

On surprises during this sale:
"No surprizes, really!"

Ashley commenting about upcoming WWR MIM sale:
"i dont know why you guys are stressed over the MIM, its gonna be expensive, even if it was just the cost of the toys right, without the shipping. thats sets for fun, never gonna sell much, the reason is, its just cool that a set that big can be done. Might never have the chance again to do it!"

Answering whether there is a chance to see EMGY Harold and NYCC EMGY exclusives:
"no more Harolds for the time being, EMGY isnt a exclusive thing. PLUS there wont be a EMGY Harold, doesnt make sense to me, doesnt fit their ideal. I coul dhave sold many at the Harold sale but it didint wash .
A couple of EMGY things were for NYCC, but not more are planned."


WWRp Medic Grunt and BETSY trauma nurse Square MK2 set:

February - 2013 RzNwd39t

It will be offered for pre-order at some point this year. Isn't it extraordinary that our 1/12th scale figures pack almost the same level of details, as 1/6th ones?

Ashley about F5 sketches and on putting Medic Grunt to the store:
cool pics guys

thanks for the support for the Mini's, many have asked that we leave them up so they can get a chance, so we are gonna do that, also gonna drop the Medic Grunt set as they are ready to go !


February - 2013 RzNwd39m

Ashley about art show in Paris and offering print run at Bambalandstore (currently he offers prints from time to time, at Ashley Wood Gallery store).
"Paris info soon as its all finalized by the gallery !
soon as i get some time ill play with the Bamba run print, not right yet..."


1/12th scale sale update:

As you probably know by now, most of our sales are usually 24 hours pre-order, when we gather money upfront and then manufacture figures to order. Our mission has always been to produce coolest toys in the world and we prefer to offer people variety and actual choice which scale, colorway , fraction or variant to buy. We been known as company, which does things in it’s own way but at the same time is open to it’s supporters needs and helps as much as it can.

January and February was a bit packed with releases and we received many emails from people, asking us to keep figures longer in the store and we decided to try and keep them 24 hours longer , until February 21st 9:00AM Hong Kong time. We hope that it will be a good solution for Legion members, who are waiting for funds to come in and do the purchase.

So, 1/12th scale Finger Gang set, Tomorrow Queens and Doc Grunt are up and still waiting for you at Bambalandstore.

Thank you so much for your support , it really means a lot to us all!


Ashley about 2000 AD AP Mongrol delays, shipping and refund:

February - 2013 K7aRXt

"i agree the shipping is lax and has taken too long, I have no control over it an find out about it normally when its shipped, thats kims world etc. Please email CS and tell them, they need to know !
And Ming, I cant show stuff or tease that isnt approved. I agree that its hard to rally support for upcoming without new images but thats the nature of the beast.
remember, voice your concerns to CS, thats where its heard !
I want my mini mongrol too ~
email CS and ask, keep asking!"
"I spoke to the office, im told that Mini Mongrol will ship march 8th , but as you have waited beyond the call of duty, Im offering anyone that doesnt want to wait a refund, just contact CS with the order details and paypal stuff etc."


Our boardie BRiZL receives AP TQ set from Ashley Wood for the sketch bellow:

February - 2013 WzY6X3Jt

"ill give you a set Briz, for all you fun and cool sketches ! so yea, you got a set.. now send me the naked tq drawings on the sly!"

New Les Mort is coming!
"yea, i want to make a baller Les Mort for the AK line. should be this year"

On TF2: Mann vs Machine figures:
"after the portal 2 bots, i think its the 1/6th Robot Heavy."

Vanilla POD TQ comes with shotgun and swords, just like 1/6th scale version

TQloper has tattoo on her right arm

Masks ain't removable on mini Grunts

AP figures just left Bambalandstore...thank you for your support guys and I hope it helped that we had them up as long, as we could!

Ashley about the sale and WWR Meat is Murder set:
"thanks guys, the medic set did great ! really appreciate that ! more grunts soon !
Still waiting for HK to give me a price for the MIM shipping, soon as i know for you few who want the set ill drop the detail here somewhere"


WWR Meat is Murder price is finalized:

"mim set price 530 shipped. thats the best we can do!"
"the MIM set is a long timem coming, and frankly its a set only 3A would do, for the obvious its WWR and jaming so many 1/6th figures in a box is kinda silly/epic !
fingers crossed we sell enough!"


About selling more WWRp Grunts
"i have all the mini grunts here, was gonna drop them all at once, but thought that would be tough on you guys. maybe one a week"

Since it's less than 24 hours before WWR Meat is Murder goes live for pre-order it's time to close Action Portable Monday F5 bar and open the new one...that's really interesting , don't remember when I did one bar after another.

Here is the final selection of art & sketches dedicated and inspired by Action Portable drop!

So WWR Meat is Murder (JEA ASSAULT CREW), which will go up for pre-order on February 22nd 9:00AM Hong Kong time at Bambalandstore. It’s biggest WWR set yet and it’s going to cost: 530 USD shipped worldwide. It’s surely ain’t cheap, but that’s the best we can do for such a massive set. It was coming for pre-order a long time (with first photo teased on June 1st 2011) , it’s an insane & crazy set, it includes FIVE 1/6th scale figures: Dropcloth, Grunt, MK1 & MK2 Squares and Armstrong.

Here is a teaser from back in the day (MIM set will have slightly different decals) and actual JEA Grunt from MIM set.

"cool sketches !
I have said it a thousand times and will say again, your always welcome here, whether you buy the toys or not, its still fun to talk about them. Please dont mess up ya finance for toys, or anything !
I hate the hawking, pimping and pushing of commerce, goto an art gallery, lots are free, and soak that in if you need a hit !
thanks for the MIM supporters, way more than I thought !"
"I dont really know what we are gonna do, im no business guy, i have no plans, thats not line, its the truth, I think the selling style proves that.
Maybe some more sets, I actually came across a variantion on the mim set, a phot with the Heavy Bramble and Mk3 bramble. it was a bigger set at some stage !"


It's been brought to Ash's attention that some people are ebay are selling fake art prints and here is Ashley giving a warning about it:
"stay away from ebay, most are rip offs or fakes !!!"
"ask me, or the guys on this board
hell they remember more than me, a quick guide to fakes is that I never do small 12" or similar prints. now if some enterprizing person can make a sticky at the top of this thread with all the prints and details of my giclees, well I would be thankful
I was printing giclee's personally back in 1999 on iris printers then roland and epson, stopped in 2003, did some more in 2005 and 6, stopped till 2008 I think and so on. I never kept great records of early prints sold on an amazon store, but most sold in the 20's on average."


We started the thread called Ashley Wood's print registry and you can check what's happening there and ask questions.

Thinking more about BIG WWR Squad here are two nice photos by our boardie: Ail, showing EMGY and WF Squads

I was asked whether JEA Grunt uses narrow body or not, the answer is that it uses regular Grunt body , not thin/narrow body.

If you are following ThreeA for last two years, you know that Popbot movie is coming. Resolution Independent now have Facebook page and they have some fresh info and photos as well!

#BREAKING NEWS#

MARVEL COMICS

ThreeA is proud to announce it’s collaboration with Marvel Comics. That’s right! The house of ideas that is Marvel Comics and ThreeA, are putting their combined talents together to bring you one epic line of 1/6 figures.

The line will consist of classic Marvel characters re-imagined by artist Ashley Wood in the ThreeA style. All the Marvel goodness that you already know and love, with an extra added twist. Releases will start in 2013.
“To get the chance to play with Marvel Comics awesome characters is kinda mind blowing” – Ashley Wood


Ashley Wood about this:
"well Ill say this, My Doc Doom is looking cool. shouldnt be saying anything, but this is the place right !"
"we want to do the spectrum from wolverine to Modok, that gives you an idea of the range. I feel very lucky to have this chance to play with Marvel stuff, pretty cool they are behind it too ! I have spoken to DC in the past but the seemed no that into it, not like Marvel!"


Confirming Iron Man:
"oh it does !"
"im a comic marvel guy, i dont care for movie version or naming systems !
I would love to make 25" galactus "


And now back to WWR MIM set. JEA Dropcloth, Squares MK1 and MK2 were already offered in the past, but as mentioned MIM ones will have different decals, as we never re-release exactly the same figures.
"re MIM decals and paint, they will be different, I dont want to repeat the same as released, i guess you have to trust me, Im betting the supporters who will be happy "

23.02

Be sure to check ThreeA x Marvel big news above!

WWR MIM set is still up at www.bambalandstore.com and we will try to keep it up, as long, as possible. Hopefully it will give a better chance to those, who really want to score it and waiting for funds to come in.

Ashley mentioning Marvel's "Sentinel" and giving an update on WWR MIM sale:
"sentinel !
thanks for the MIM support guys, i was sure we would not sell more than 20 !
I didnt think the Marvel would be so popular a concern, i was happy to play in that pond, but wow, people are into it !"


Posting in ThreeA x Marvel general discussion thread:
"Annihilus is cool... Byrne did a good one"

On his favorite character by Marvel:
"if you mean Marvel, i like too many, marvel along with 2000ad were my best friends as a kid ( i lived for comics, and lived in them ), i like so many.. wouldnt want to upset them by picking one!"

Referring to the fact that Marvel hint was posted on the blog back in November:
"im no hint master !"

I decided to give early heads-up, as we plan to offer 1/12th scale Grunt towards the end of this week.

"a grunt this week, end of week !"

I don't know if one WWRp Grunt per week place are still in motion, but here is what Ashley mentioned on the forum on February 21st:
"i have all the mini grunts here, was gonna drop them all at once, but thought that would be tough on you guys. maybe one a week"

WWR Bot Sniper Frank will be offered later in March.
